ALGORITHMS CAN PREDICT' INHIBITORS CAN CONTROL NORM SCALE

John E. Oddo Water Research Institute Inc. Houston Mason B. Tomson Rice University Houston Formation of the most common naturally occurring radioactive material (NORM) containing scale, barium sulfate (BaSO4), can be effectively predicted and controlled based on water chemistry and selecting the most effective scale inhibitors. Several relatively simple equations can indicate if sulfate scales will form in wells and surface production facilities. For control of BaSO4 scale, laboratory tests
